About this book

Drosophila is a comprehensive collection of methods and protocols for Drosophila, one of the oldest and most commonly used model organisms in modern biology. The text presents a diverse set of techniques that range from the basic handling of flies to more complex applications, such as the generation of mutants by homologous recombination and the analysis of developing flies by live imaging. Review chapters provide concise overviews of selected experimental systems.

This is the perfect reference manual for Drosophila researchers. The straightforward presentation of Drosophila protocols will bolster successful experimental design and lead to reproducible results, and the troubleshooting tips are an invaluable aid for researchers at all levels. Drosophila will advance the use of Drosophila as a model organism by collecting standard, introductory protocols and advanced protocols, simultaneously providing a platform for introductory research and facilitation advanced study.
